Buxton Trout And Salmon Farm

Come to the Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm in the Yarra Valley for a fun-filled day out. Located just two hours drive from Melbourne, the farm is a perfect setting for picnicking, fishing and tours.

Buxton Trout And Salmon Farm, Maroondah Highway Vic

With its crystal clear water from the snowfields of Lake Mountain, the waterway at the farm is a perfect habitat for all kinds of fresh water fish. The fish grown here are only fed on natural food and to keep them healthy and the farm doesn’t use any chemical or hormone based product as fish food.

You can fish in any of the large ponds which contain the following: large trout (500g -3kg), medium trout (300g-500g), a salmon pond (1kg-4kg) and a challenge lake (lightly stocked). Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm does not practice catch and release, therefore all fish that are caught must be paid for.

Unquestionably, a visit to the Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm is a fun day out for the whole family. Hook onto a big fish and cook your meal at the venue or enjoy the chef’s special fish delicacies. Cooked in a traditional method of preparing the fish over the mountain ash fire, the mountain ash smoked trout is a mouth-watering dish that you shouldn’t miss.
